  1. Thanks! Its o so much easier, especially with a bucket underneath it too! It is a big 40L thing. Catches all the water and can feed the rope back in or out to clean it again. I think it is a Puss Moth caterpillar from my own searching, though someone else, as well as Paul above, have mentioned it might be an elephant hawk moth.
  2. Hi All. Did a small take down on a willow tree recently, packed the kit away and pulled it out 2 days later to clean and discoved a passenger. Anyone ever seen/had this happen to them? Had to fail the rope as it had gone through 4 of the outer and one of the inner strands creating its cocoon.
